This editorial from Lula Magazine is so awesome! I love drawings on top of pictures! The drawings are by Jo Ratcliffe, who is pretty awesome all on her own…

I am so inspired by this project Color Me Katie created! She and her boyfriend traced themselves in various positions on black paper, cut them out and taped them up around Brooklyn! Then they waited and photographed people passing by when they matched with the shadows. What fun! Check out her blog here!

I love these beautiful pieces by Zanis Waldheim. I’m always a sucker for colorful art, but these are like geometric color studies times ten! Yves Jeanson has a fabulous set on Flickr featuring nearly 200 of Zanis’ pieces like this. Definitely worth taking a look!

These beautiful paper dresses are from Jum Nakao‘s S/S 05 collection. According to Style Bubble, at the end of the show the models ripped and tore the dresses off, to the shock of the spectators! This after 700 hours of work on the collection. Too much!
Anyhow, I could look at these pictures forever. These dresses are just so intricate and amazing! Be sure to check out Style Bubble’s post where I saw these pictures if you like them – she has more images and a video!

I know we’ve already looked at some animal sculptures today, but these are just so dear! Kyoko Okubo crafts these little figures from washi, a traditional Japanese paper. I can’t believe they are made out of paper! You’ve gotta love the twig antlers too! See many more of Kyoko’s cute creations here.

How big are these pieces? I was wondering perhaps you can create a nature & wildlife decor theme for the home. There are brilliant photographic prints of wildlife in action you can display to create an interior design like that.

oh man, that little dormouse (i think) guy kills me! so cute! and they are all beautiful.

driftwood animals

jansch_horse2.jpg
These gorgeous animals were sculpted using driftwood found on beaches. They are so incredible! I am amazed at how well they flow together- I don’t know how the artist, Heather Jansch, manages to put the wood together so perfectly! Heather has been sculpting for nearly 40 years, and she has tons of other work on her site – it’s worth taking a look at, if only to see all the other animals she has made!

giant dollhouse

benning_dollhouse_det.jpg
Artist Heather Benning created this life-size dollhouse from an abandoned farmhouse in Saskatchewan! One outside wall has been completely replaced with plexiglass to create the dollhouse view. Heather also decorated the house with 60′s furnishings, on account of that is when the house was apparently abandoned. I would love to go and visit this in real life! I would be overcome with the desire to go in though – that is always my problem with regular sized dollhouses – I want to get in somehow!

The Dollhouse is so cute, I found it along the highway this past fall. What an interesting concept and you have to be careful not to miss it as you go along the road as the outside is pretty inconspicuous. It reminded me of my grandma's old countryhouse.

Aren’t these creations by Blaze Danielle amazing!? I just love them, they look so carefully and delicately done. I would love to have one of these pieces on a tee-shirt, even though I would have to be extra-careful with it! See more at Blaze Danielle’s blog and Etsy.

google maps alphabet

I know that many different art alphabets have been making the rounds lately on the net, so I hope you are not too tired of them to enjoy this awesome Google Maps alphabet! I really especially loved this one, I had to share! These were found by Rhett Dashwood, and interestingly enough, he found all the letters within the state of Victoria, Australia! I’m serious! That really makes me think. I bet one could find an alphabet in each of the 50 American states!
Well, maybe… See the bigger version of the alphabet on Rhett’s site.
